As was the case with Fete de la Musique, New York joins the party I would not say late but later than many other cities and countries have for Nuit Blanche with the first ever event that comes to the big apple under the Bring to Light moniker in Green Point, Brooklyn.
Here's the program:
Bring to Light is New York City's first-ever Nuit Blanche festival.
"A Nuit Blanche is an all night arts festival of installations and performances celebrating the magic and luminance of light. Nuit Blanche events enliven cities all around the globe, but there has never been one in New York.
BRING TO LIGHT NYC will be held in Greenpoint, Brooklyn primarily on Oak Street between Franklin St. and the East River waterfront in Fall 2010, beginning at sundown. The event is free and open to the public. This unique block will play host to local and international artists, performers, galleries, and musicians as they Bring to Light the street itself as well as its unique assets including metal, set design and textile workshops"
I love the night lights baby!
